2008-05-12 00:43:02     error opening PPI device in BF561 ezkit lite

Hi All,

 

 

 

I'm unable to open the PPI0 device present in BF561 ezkit lite under the 2008R1-RC8 distribution. The same ppi driver code works fine with the 2007R1-RC3 distribution. I'm getting the following error whenever i'm opening the PPI0 device. I've checked in the devices & Interrupts registry of the distribution.

 

Distribution: 2008R1-RC8

 

kit: ADSP BF561 ezkit lite

 

Here is the following output that i've observed under 2008R1-RC8:

 

root:/bin> cat /proc/interrupts

  6:       2474   BFIN Timer Tick

18:          0   PPI0

35:          0   BFIN_UART_RX

36:       3704   BFIN_UART_TX

62:          0   Core B - DMA Destination

Err:          0

Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.

showing us custom error message from a custom application isnt really useful, especially when the error message contains no information

 

run it through strace to find out why exactly the open() call is failing
